If you're ready for the sticker shock (30 Euro) drinks, then this is the place for you. The Clean Dirty Martini is incredible and savoury. The Bar usually would have a fair number of tourists but Hemingway really did hang out there. Not a bad way to enjoy one of the finest hotels in Paris (without staying there!)

The only place to have cocktails in Paris, Colin & Roman provide the perfect atmosphere, tall tales and long drinks in the most intimate of surroundings with fellow travellers from around the world, our home from home for 3 nights we stayed at Ritz Paris in August. Oh to be back there!

I have been to Paris 15 times, and have been to the Bar Hemingway only 12 times. What was I thinking the other 3 times??? The decor is unbelievable. The drinks are outstanding. The bartenders are extremely helpful, friendly, and accommodating. I have several favorite bars in the world, but this is #1! Now that it has re-opened, and apparently... More

Snuck in to see how the 1% lives.... Fancy! Wild drinks for a lot of money but you go for the experience and an experience it was! The bartender was something out of a movie talking about naming drinks after clients... My Pimms was the grandest I have ever seen, even had a white rose! The scotch pours were healthy... More

As you walk through the Ritz to the Hemingway Bar, you get a sense you are about to have a special experience. And it was. It is an expensive drink, but what you get for your money is exceptional service (the best service I received in Paris), some delicious snacks, and an extraordinary drink. If you have a special night... More

Hemingway bar is just fabulous! Nothing has changed since the Ritz Hotel reopened. You can drink classic cocktails - always perfectly balanced - but also follow the good advices of Roman (the nicest bartender, even if I need to recognize that the whole team is lovely) and discover astonishing and delicious cocktails. The Raspberry Martini is probably my favourite one.... More

My husband took me here for my 35th Birthday. Was absolutely wonderful. Friendly, kind, welcoming and attentive staff. Had a bottle off the house rosé champagne which was divine. Expensive but you are in the Ritz! Wonderful atmosphere and fascinating history. Felt privileged to be here. Pauline was brilliant - thank you.

We were so happy to have a drink at the Hemingway's since its reoppening ! What a disapointment ! We're used to palaces all over the world but this visit was such a joke, we couldn't believe it. I asked for a cosmopolitan, my every place's test. The first was so mean in alcohol that I asked for a change.... More
